Unofficial Google Shell

goosh.org - the unofficial google shell (http://goosh.org/).
It is pretty neat and useful in its neonatal state itself, like to read a feed, you can type, for eg:

r http://www.google.com/reader/public/atom/user/11136726768885096694/label/cbn-roll

and gets default 4 latest feeds, or you can check out a ncbi accession by typing, for eg:

NP_001108376

and get to the Fugu fish refseq link.

The most useful thing is the fact that it it text based and quite easy to parse visually as well as via scripts.
Another cool feature for me right now is the shell translation, like to get the english word for the norwegian word 'hvor', all I have to do is type:

t no en hvor

which correctly says:
translating "hvor" from "no" to "en":

"where"

More discussion going on at http://tech.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/06/02/222234&from=rss .
